short and good

An interesting game. The surreal art style was beautiful. We enjoyed it very much.

Here is a short video we made while playing:

Keep up the good work!!!

Nice game. :)

Thank you for playing!

Hello! I really enjoyed your game, it had an interesting visual style and was definitely quite the experience. You told the story strikingly well and it was very artistic. I made a let's play of your game here~

Hi Kathryn,

Thank you for doing a let's play of ! It's a real honour! Apologies for the late reply, I missed the notification from itch.io for some reason.

It was a bit surreal in itself to watch someone commentate something I made years ago back in uni :)  The game is basically one big tribute to Mulholland Drive.  I wanted to experiment with using a game's first-person camera to cut between different perspectives.  Unfortunately, I didn't have enough time/ resources to have voice acting.   So in the end, I could only hint at the changing perspectives through different fonts representing internal thoughts of the three characters.  

Hopefully that makes the narrative a bit easier to understand :)

Thanks again for playing!


Hi Allan!

I'm thrilled you liked the let's play and don't worry about the late reply, I'm glad you did nonetheless! I can see the inspiration from Mulholland Drive as I studied that film at uni. That's still an interesting way to portray the differing perspectives :) You're more than welcome for playing, thank you good sir for making the game itself!
